It's high time I did one of these Geeklist things. It's my first one so please don't be too hard on me if its too boring or pointless

Basically what I'm trying to do here is make a list of games that contain a cast of named characters that are playable within the game (i.e. for most of these titles you would chose the character at the beginning of the game and use them throughout, or sometimes you might choose them by selecting whichever faction they are a part of e.g. Dune). I'm not listing games that have generic character names (e.g. Warrior, Cleric, Wizard, Assassin etc).

The main requirement is that the character must be playable as an individual within the game at some point. Why do a list like this? I don't know, I kinda like the thought that I'm actually playing a character with a name when I play a game, and maybe some of you out there might have some more suggestions for me.

The list will contain an entry for each game with a list of characters for that game (alphabetical order). I've personally only added games that I own.

By now, nearly every hero character has appeared in a live-action movie. There's an Iron Man movie in the works. Even Thor appeared in a crappy episode of the old Hulk TV series. There was a so-so Dr. Strange TV movie a long, long time ago.
